Pump House Gallery, Pleasure Garden Fountains, Battersea Park, London SW11 4NJ
Near the large fountains in Battersea Park that are the remnants of the 1950s Festival of Britain, are the mirror pools and Scott’s latest work. Scott’s practice combines the physical and the explicitly bodily with the industrial and manufactured. Her concern with ‘Developer’ is the situating of the park in a former industrial heartland – how it came to be a place of pleasure within saltpetre works. Review by Betsy Porritt

Centres of economic might are shifting, and the geographic catchments of the Guggenheim’s UBS-sponsored MAP programme are not defined as much by shared cultural context as they are by their markets. Alex Quicho reviews 'Under the Same Sun'.
Marlborough Contemporary, 6 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4BY
Landau's photographs feature a black dress submerged in the Dead Sea. Over time it progressively whitens, encrusting in salt, until emerging as a shimmering bridal frock with tiny surface gaps that reveal its dark origins. Review by Jilly Knipe
KARST, 22 George Place, Stonehouse, Plymouth, PL13NY
Ever since their invention, submarines have been a source of unextinguished curiosity. Silently present in the depths of the sea, they are in equal parts insidious and menacing as they are intriguing and mysterious. Review by Eva Szwarc
